Most dogs spend 10 hours or more every day without their human companions. Owners have busy lives and struggle to fit everything they need and want to do into their hectic schedules. Hobbies that you can share with your dog simplify your life and add enjoyment for both you and your dog.
The same old walk around the block may get your dog a bit of physical activity, but her mind needs stimulation too. Paddling provides new experiences, sights, and scents that exercise her mind. Imagine kayaking past pelicans and sea lions with your dog standing at the bow, ears flying, or your pup lying contendly on your standup paddleboard as you get an early morning workout, or pulling the canoe up to a campsite while kids and dogs pile out to explore. Even in the most urban environments, paddling offers an escape from the pavement and a sense of freedom. Paddling together is good for both of you!
